    At the end of the day, he owns the team. He’s a billionaire for a reason. And, you’re not. These guys watch every penny.

    Can’t believe anybody thought a career-mediocre player would magically become not mediocre here. Complete waste of a draft pick.

    They are going to leave this scrub open in the playoffs.

    Opposing defense is going to play off of him.

    Lol. Yeah CC is going to solve all of this mess.

    We can’t even get over mediocre teams at this point.
    Don’t kid yourself. Too much screwing around in personnel change. It’s unbelievable.

    I haven't watched any of the games with him in them. Anyone willing to give me a breakdown of what his weaknesses are? Strengths (if you see any?)

    Sounds like he needs to be spending time in the gym with Harden launching 1000 threes a day.

    Rockets wasted a draft pick for this dude and will likely overpay to keep him on the team, yet are perfectly content letting the better player in House sit at home.

    Just awful roster management

    Called it, rich man's Corey Sewer.

    Meanwhile we have House, who shot the best for us this year at 40% and somehow we're still refusing to pay him because we need to save Tilman money.

    Never forget when Harden threw away game 5 in OT vs the Spurs in the 16-17 playoffs with 3 straight TOs.

    His shot hasn't been falling yet, but I'm confident he'll start hitting once he gets in a groove. He shot decent this year in Sacramento and he's getting some open looks. I definitely like his aggressiveness on defense. I think all the complaints about the guy are very premature.

    Ennis was bringing some energy and dunks.

    Not disparaging shump. But he is not a Rasheed Wallace that could save anybody.

    A good team doesn't make personnel mistakes this often.

    Looking like a total bust so far.

    and every one of those TOs, Harden does the classic "dont run back on defense and watch other team score on fast-break"

    It's still a staple Harden move to this day.
